New Capital Regional District boss familiar to staff

Organization conducted a continent-wide search before hiring Bob Lapham

Capital Regional District veteran staffer Bob Lapham has taken over the top job at the CRD.

Robert Lapham, a longtime Capital Regional District staffer and the initial point man for public input on a deer management policy for the region, is the CRD’s new chief administrative officer.

Lapham, who has also served as general manager of planning, transportation and protective services for the regional district, replaces Kelly Daniels, who recently retired.

Lapham will oversee 500 employees and report to the 24-member CRD board. He was chosen after the CRD conducted a North America-wide executive search.

Board chair and Central Saanich Mayor Alistair Bryson said in a release that Lapham’s “track record of bringing people and ideas together to deliver excellent results make him an ideal individual to lead the CRD in creating a vibrant, livable and sustainable region for years to come.”

Lapham also assumes the role of chief administrative officer for the Capital Regional Hospital District.
